“Am I not your Rabb”? – Prologue: Part 1

lailahaillahallahThere were people when they were asked who the earth and the heavens (sky) belong to?
You will see Muslims today who say this.
There were people when they were asked “Who created you?”, “Who give life to dead?” They said Allah. 
You will see Muslims today who say this.
They did tawaf around Allah’s house.
You will see Muslims today also do tawaf around the same house.
They were a nation (tribe) called Quraish.
They believed in Allah and worshiped Allah, but they worshiped others beside Allah so they were called Mushrik,  they were not called Muslims.
You will see people today who called themselves Muslims, believe in Allah (as Quraish did) and worship Allah. However, many of them go to ‘Mazar’, ‘Dorgah’, ‘Pir’ (I even feel disgusted to put any reference to these activities)to ask for help (just as Quraish used to go to the idols to ask for help). Many of them sacrifice cattle for their ‘Pir’ (just as Quraish used to do the same for idols). But surprisingly they still call themselves Muslims!
What do you think these Muslims should be called today? I’ll let you think, but meanwhile I propose the name ‘Mushrik Muslim’ (though mushrik cannot be associated with ‘Muslim’, but what can I do? Someone please think of an appropriate name).
Then, Quraish had their own system of life. They had their own social culture, and in their daily life they followed the systems made by their fore fathers, (long gone was the ‘system of life’ taught to them by their fathers Ibrahim and Ishmail) so they were called ‘Jahili Arabs’.
You will see people today who called themselves Muslims, and follow a system of life other than what their creator has prescribed for them. Yet surprisingly, they call themselves Muslims. (Take yourself out of the sphere and think what they should be called now, but meanwhile I propose the name “Jahil Muslim” (though “Jahil” cannot be associated with ‘Muslims’, but what can I do? Someone please think of an appropriate name).
The time those Quraish lived in were called ‘Jahiliyyah’ . Since today Muslims also doing the same thing, so what should this time be called, other than ‘Jahiliyyah‘?
Let’s now think, what’s the difference between the people of Quraish who believed in Allah and the people today who believe in Allah?
Those people who were called ‘Jahili Arabs’ did not have a guideline or an instruction manual or a book to follow.
But today’s Muslim have a guideline, an instruction manual, a book from the one who created them. Yet they follow the system other than what their Rabb prescribed for them. Aren’t these ‘Muslim’ living in more (double or square) than a ‘Arab Jahiliyyah’? Aren’t they should be called double or square of ‘Jahil’?
The mountains are about to explode, the oceans are pounding on rage, the skies are roaring on anguish. They have the ideas of the kufr’s, they have the lifestyle that of kufr’s, they run their life with that of the philosophy of kufr’s, but still they call themselves Muslims. They think they own Islam because they were born in a Muslim family, while they took kufr’s as their Rabb. Who then, are more Jahil than today’s Muslims? Aren’t they more Jahil than the “Jahil Arabs”? (Because they did not have a guideline)
This is the premise of this blog. O Muslims, Who do you take as your Rabb? Your creator, or the people who do not believe in their creator? Whose system do you follow in your life? The system of kufr’s, or the system of your creator? Who do you take as your Rabb? Did Allah not give you a complete system of life? Did not Allah ask you “Am I not you Rabb?” So who do you follow? Is Allah not your Rabb?
